Chiefs Cornerback Enters Concussion Protocol

The Kansas City Chiefs could be short one of their young defensive backs for the remainder of their Week 10 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Cornerback Chris Lammons exited in the first half and was placed in concussion protocol.
Lammons has played primarily special teams for the Chiefs since joining the team in 2020. His absence hasn't hurt the Chiefs so far in Week 10; the Chiefs lead the Jags 20-7 entering halftime.

The Chiefs defense has held up its end of the bargain against the Jaguars, holding quarterback Trevor Lawrence to 127 net passing yards. But the story in the game has been the continued excellence of quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who has totalled 230 yards and three touchdowns in two quarters of play. He's a favorite to take home MVP this year.

So long as their receiving corps can survive a scary injury to Juju Smith-Schuster, the Chiefs should be alright without Lammons for the day.
